Commercial Floor Heater Repair Safety Tips
What exactly is a floor furnace?
Ask any professional commercial floor heater repair service and they will tell you, that a floor furnace is one that is level with the ground floor of a structure. They are often placed in a room which doesn’t even use blower fans, instead, it uses convection currents to carry heat through ventilation systems. These furnaces were frequently installed in Southern California where heat dispersal was not a big concern due to the mild winters.
When you own a commercial space, you will know how important it is to maintain these systems. Proper commercial furnace maintenance will ensure your system operates safely and efficiently, which will protect your business and help you to maintain your bottom line. Our team can help you in accomplishing this goal!
Always be safe.
You should remember to switch off the fuel supply and electrical power before any commercial maintenance is performed. You need to familiarize yourself with all the locations of switches in the event of an emergency.
Keeping filters clean.
Dirty filters will place extra strain on your system, which in turn will increase your heating bills, not to mention reduce your system’s lifespan. Inspect your filters every month to make sure they are clean. Pleated filters have a lifespan of around 3 months, while permanent filters need to be cleaned each month. Should you have an electronic air cleaner, make sure you clean its filters every other month. Furnace filters usually have a cover over the slot for safety purposes.
Continued function of the thermostat.
Your thermostat is what controls your furnace and is important when it comes to commercial maintenance, as it maintains a comfortable business environment, in addition to controlling energy costs. To get the most for your money, you should consider investing in a programmable thermostat.
